We have been to a total of 7 different safari camps in Botswana and Zimbabwe. I would put our experience at Chitabe Lediba in the top 3. That is good considering that is was beginning to be quite warm on this visit. As with all of the Wilderness Safari camps, the staff are one of the main assets. They are...

To start our adventure at Chitabe, we had a nice flight from Maun in one of Wilderness Camps’ small planes with our friendly and efficient pilot, Nathan. It was just the two of us with Nathan. He escorted us to the plane, explained all the safety features, and then showed us a map that we could use to follow the...

Accommodation excellent and delicious meals served 4 times a day - not sure how they manage as all provisions have to be flown in. Staff welcomed me as a solo 75 year old as if I were a really special person. Game sightings included all the animals I ever wanted to see, even cheetah and leopards.

We truly enjoyed our 3 nights at Chitable Lediba. The accomodations were very nice and quite comfortable. The common areas were very pretty too.

How can I start. This trip was our third trip to Africa and the second to Chitabe. As part of the Wilderness Safari group, Chitabe is what the call a classic camp - not over the top with luxury (though actually quite lovely), the game viewing is the best we have experienced. What makes it one of the best are...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Intimate Chitabe Lediba is a perfect game viewing base for families or small groups. A lediba is a lagoon that has become a waterhole, where a variety of wildlife comes to drink. Chitabe Lediba's dining area, lounge, and pool all overlook just such a vista. The sister camp of Chitabe, it lies on the other side of the same tree island and echoes many of its sibling's qualities. The same well-appointed canvas tents are raised on decks with uniquely styled interiors, but the smaller nature of the camp offers a more intimate experience, ideal for small groups or families. Highlights: Chitabe Lediba sports that classic Okavango Delta scenery, from palm-dotted floodplains to open savannah and woodlands. This mix of Okavango (water) and Kalahari (land) makes for an excellent home to an abundant array of herbivores: giraffe, buffalo, red lechwe, tsessebe, impala and elephant, which in turn support the larger predators: lion, leopard, spotted hyaena, cheetah and the rare and charismatic wild dog. The Camp is composed of 4 Tents (including 2 Family Tents): Spacious en-suite Meru-type tents, individually styled; outdoor shower with a view; family units withadjoining en-suite bedrooms. Experiences Include: Day and night game drives and Guided walks (on request) ... more   less
